Default Name on Passport and PR Card

My UK passport (and Canadian work permit) are in my maiden name but I am starting the PR application with my husband sponsoring me, should I continue to use my maiden name as that is what is on my passport or should I do the application in my married name. This would obviously result in my passport and PR card having 2 different names on them.

Any advice appreciated!

Note that your COPR and your PR card will be issued in the name on your passport. So if you want to file under your married name, you will have to amend your passport.
